4:30 pm
take us back through the decades. not so much medically but what it was like socially living with aids and how it has changed up until now in 2016. or maybe the social acceptance hasn't changed. >> if anything remembering those days we expected to die almost immediately. the guy that passed me hiv he died one year later. to live with that fear that you'll die day after day, you may live eight years. you may live 20. here we are 30 years later. >> i thought one of the most touching moments in the film was when one man said you got your life back. but i'm not sure that i wanted it. that's because this film is about people who are aging with hiv and how the system is not about helping them at this point into senior citizenship.
4:31 pm
what was the most surprising thing making the film for you when it came to that and statistics saying more people in their 50s have hiv? >> it was a surprise to me to start to understand that these people did survive and they battled the disease and did whatever they could. even at that point they weren't sure they wanted their life back. some had dealt with so much loss and so much death they didn't know how to move on. with such resilience a lot have been able to. i find that personally to be amazing. >> why tell this story today, 2016, why tell it here in san francisco? >> i think because this is a generation of people that really needs help. also, it is a really important story now because it is such a san francisco story, too. this is a really particular thing that affected our area
4:32 pm
and it is really important for us to tell these survivor stories. >> it is so important because 6,000 people live with hiv for more than 20 years. you are one of them. you lived with it more than 30 years. it is important to know even though there are drug cocktails that are keeping people alive, it is not all that easy. you still have health issues. there is a lot to go through still health-wise. >> exactly. this is important that you are mentioning. it is not only the physical aspects but the mental aspects. there is so much anxiety and nightmares excetera to live with this. imagine that you have been told not once but a few times you are going to die. to live with that is very, very difficult. besides that yes, we have so many morbidities and diseases we are living with. it is not easy. sadly even in those times we
4:33 pm
think everything is fine, for us long time survivors is not easy. >> it is really not easy. the film shows that. not many people that had hiv planned for living long. they thought they cashed in their insurance policies because they want to live well in the short term. now people are facing that financial problem. >> yes. not only we were not prepared to grow older but society is not ready for us. hopefully this will help pull in services. we need them very much. one important thing to all the survivors. we are not alone. the your story. find a way to tell your story. >> when people see this film
4:34 pm
what do you want them to walk away with? what will they learn? >> it was amazing to be let into their lives. a lot of these people have such interesting stories and lived through so much hardship that i have not gotten close to experiencing. to hear them tell their stories and to have the honor of being able to record it on film and tell that story to a larger audience has been an interesting experience for me. i hope people take away awareness of what they went through and what they are going through. how they might be able to use resources and documenting history. a very important piece of the bay area. >> moving forward what does the city need to focus on? resources are simply not there. it is about prevention and looking for a possible cure. for the thousands of people like you that are living with this and getting older, what does the city need to do now to
4:35 pm
help? >> first, we definitely, about 60% of the population in san francisco is over 50 years old. we have not only the issues with hiv but hiv and growing older. most of all we were not prepared to be here. we were supposed to be dead. again, many people spent their money with credit cards and everything. we didn't have resources to grow old like other people do. >> how did you do it? you survived. you are thriving the living. how did you make it through those times? >> i always ask the question, why me? why am i here? and the person that infected me die one year later? we don't have those answers. but all the while we can say they are here. we are not only survivors but
4:36 pm
surviving still. we are still going on. going on. >> one of the guys we are interviewed he asked the question am i lucky one or unluckiest lucky person to survive this. one of the men we worked with passed away during this project. it is still a real thing for these guys going through this. >> i read that. that was peter green 61 years old. he said i am the luckiest unlucky person in the world. >> very powerful. thank you very much for coming. really appreciate it. >> thank you. we also have links to the documentary website on ktvu.com. we posted a link to facebook on long term survivor's group. you can go ktvu.com and find the information including when you can try the documentary for yourself. chp, did you notice them today out in full force with
